Also, on a side note.... the Rule 5 draft is in about 2 weeks. I just need some clarification on this. As long as a player is not on a 40 man roster, he is fair game?
Players are eligible for selection in the Rule 5 draft who are not on their major league organization's 40-man roster and:
were signed at age 19 or older and have been in the organization for four years; or
were signed at age 18 or younger and have been in the organization for five years.
